Must be one of those mornings when you wonder why you even got out of bed.

It was an A330-300 with just 40 pax, as incredible as it being turned away. If that is a typical load factor on OZ how long could they sustain for. Other Korean carriers must be hurting from this too.

I think daelight was wondering if it is currently typical of Asiana flights. If it is, then the virus will be putting its finances under extreme pressure.
